Dreaming of a Book Deal? Get Your Idea in Front of Our Editors
Are you known for your sharp wit? Are you the sort that has ’em in stitches at the party? Have you been sitting on a hilarious book idea for years, always meaning to submit it? Your time has come!
The Great Tumblr Book Search, The Sequel is here! This is your chance to get your humor book idea right under the noses of our editors.
We kicked off the first-annual Great Tumblr Book Search last year. Open to all U.S. residents with a sense of humor, the contest invited prospective writers to use the medium of Tumblr to explain their LOL, ZOMG, LMAO book ideas.
Our grand-prize winner was Sh*t Rough Drafts by Paul Laudiero. Chronicle offered Laudiero a book deal and now Sh*t Rough Drafts is coming to a bookstore near you on April 15th! (Writers of bad first drafts, rejoice!)
And now, it’s your turn. Hop over to the Chronicle Books Tumblr to learn how to submit your humor book idea. The grand-prize winner will receive $300 of Chronicle books and a feedback session with a Chronicle Books editor. Plus, his or her humor book idea will be considered for publication. Submissions must be received by March 31st.
